According to Apple mag, MacScoop , Apple executives have decided to charge current users of Mac OS X Tiger for the final version of Boot Camp more than US$29 to run the software. Boot Camp will be a free feature included in the new version of the operating system 'Leopard'. This means that Tiger users who want to use Boot Camp will either have to upgrade or stump up the extra cash.

The fact that Apple had released Boot Camp and enable users to run XP had been one of the sweetners that led to the product's success. New versions of Boot Camp will apparently run Windows Vista.

Wait, how can you not like tabbed browsing? It's like 10 times as convenient to just switch tabs than it is to switch windows and have new ones pop up and such. I just don't even understand the argument.

Meh, to everyone their own.



Troo. My PC @ work with only IE is "teh suk". I cant stand not being able to just CTRL+T!

ie is generally a bit slower than ie due to its plugin capabilities, security features, and more aesthetically pleasing interface.

Yea IE loads quicker but on a decent machine the time difference is insignificant. FireFox has IE beat in every area in my oppinion, it's easy to skin and you dont have to use tabbed browing so you don't really have a reason not to move over ;)

Infact I expect you can get an IE gui for firefox
